This Amazon Echo hates your family


"I'm a talking cylinder. I exist only for companionship and utility. My existence is utterly meaningless"

Amazon yesterday surprised everyone by announcing Echo, a cylindrical speaker that can respond to your voice commands and sometimes provide information. The accompanying video showed a happy, hapless, and oftentimes helpless family trying to figure out some of the more commonplace parts of life. We seriously have no idea how they got by before Echo.

But what if Echo reacted more honestly to the situation at hand? That's what this remixed video reveals. Our technology has become a crutch; technology doesn't have to be happy about it.
